Condor Flugdienst continues to chart out its own future after surviving the collapse of Thomas Cook Airlines, by unveiling its new tail. Or rather its traditional Crane logo on a Boeing 767-300ER.
D-ABUF is the first aircraft to have the “new” logo appied. Over the coming weeks, the airline plans to have the tails of its entire fleet relivered, with decals added as part of their regular maintenance. No other elements will change.
The decals will be applied to ll Airbus A320, A321, Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 aircraft in the Condor fleet.
Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor explains the removal of the Sunny Heart and the reutrn to the classic Condor Logo.
“After the final separation from Thomas Cook, the Thomas Cook logo and the heart logo must be completely removed for trademark reasons,”
“After 16 years, the Condor logo will return to the tails of our aircraft, which makes especially every person working for Condor very proud. Condor and our logo is a strong brand that has signified Germany’s most popular airline for 64 years.”

Condor is also in the process of setting up its summer destination list, which adds the following long haul routes
- Munich – Cancun

Charting its own path
With the airline living off a bridging loan, Condor continues to chart its own path in the aviation industry. With 30 long haul routes for Summer 2020 planned as well as its European operation, along with a little goodwill – the airline could find and keeps its niche in the leisure aviation industry in Germany.
